Beachcroft Wansbroughs, Manchester's fastest growing law firm, is running a 'Protecting Youth in Sport' seminar on 1 December 2005 from 2:30pm - 8:00pm, at St Ann's House, St. Ann Street, Manchester.
Aimed at anyone who works with young people in sport, the seminar will cover the legal and practical issues surrounding youth protection, as well as sports liability and disclosure of data.
Pauline Cowie, partner at Beachcroft Wansbroughs and speaker at the seminar comments: "We have a specialist sports law group at Beachcroft Wansbroughs so are ideally placed to provide a range of advice and information on protecting young sportspeople.
"The event is priced at £25 per delegate, with all proceeds going to SportsAid, which plays a vital role in helping talented young sportsmen and women when others can't or won't."
Jan Levinson, partner at Beachcroft Wansbroughs and leading sports litigation solicitor will open the event, followed by a joint presentation by Rebecca Ledingham, independent child protection consultant, and Kiran Bhogal, partner, Beachcroft Wansbroughs.
